We can see the exact concordance of the Axial interval and Indic religion, but this can very confusing at first.

The point here is that there is some kind of ‘higher power’ here, beyond god or IHVH or the buddhas, and it enters into the ‘evolution’ of civilization, which is however still man made…

To prevent abuse of theistic historicism consider the discussions in:

the illusion that archaic israelitism had anything to do with ‘god’ dies hard…
